Transition is a funny thing isn't it. When you're in transition, you never feel like you are. I mean, you never think, "Well, I'd better make the most of this uncomfortable season, because it will be over soon!" No, usually, when you're in the middle of a season, you feel stuck, because you can't imagine it actually will ever end. The definition of transition is = the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. So what does that mean for you? Are you in a period of transition at the moment? Are you're waiting for something?
When we're IN transition, we can often feel frustrated and discouraged. Especially in the final moments before we move into that new thing. However, let me encourage you. This is a what a butterfly looks like, flitting around in all it's beauty... Stunning hey.
But now look at the "not so glamorous" transition it had to go through to get into this world... Ouch.
Transition is rarely smooth sailing and glamorous. But the moment we come through it and move into the new season, it always, always makes sense. When you're in it however, it can be so hard to see. And this, my friends, is where the leap of faith steps in.
Many times all we can do is trust. We just have to believe that what we are doing IS leading us somewhere, and there IS great purpose in it all, even though most of the time it actually doesn't even make sense. But... let me encourage us all today... :)
Your harvest is certain. The reward is already part of your future. I am standing with you in this race and cheering you on. Whatever season you are in, just remember, that's exactly what it is -- a "season". And if we think about our four seasons, sometimes they feel like they go on forever (hello... winter!?) but the thing that gives us hope is that we know they each have an end date. The season is not going to last forever. And so it is with us. Just when things seem like they're never going to change, they always do. So, in the words of our wonderful friend Dory, whatever season you are in my friends.............
Because, guess what...........
And you know what else?
That's right. ANYthing. Are you ready for that? Have you pictured it in your mind? Have your written it out and stuck it on your mirror as a reminder? Because, as we declare and expect things to happen and change, they will.
Have the best day!
